Default Brux ale...."domesticated wild ale"

It's pretty darn good. Fruity and clean...some belgianesque funk but lots of fruity notes. It's a noble effort between Sierra Nevada and Russian River brewing.

Sierra Nevada really knows how to manage the yeast. I give it a solid 88/100 points. Very drinkable stuff. The 8 percent alcohol is very cloying.

Cloying? Not sure what you mean. I have never heard abv descibed as cloying, and it is certainly not cloyingly sweet.

I managed to find a bottle and I'll be opening it soon, want to grab another one to put away for a good long while and see how it develops.
